Catch 22. The works of Robert Rankin. Current book by my bed is "A
New Kind of Science" by Stephen Wolfram. A real page turner (not,
but kind've interesting). I generally read the Independent and the
New Scientist regularly.
TV Shows I have enjoyed recently: Daily Show, Colbert Report,
Sopranos, Treme, Game of Thrones, Men of a Certain Age, The Wire,
Sons of Anarchy, Weeds.. and many more.. also many that are not
even that good. I watch too much television.
Avenue Q was pretty good.
Anything with the blues. Though, as an *coughcough*aspiring*cough*
musician myself, everybody else's is not as good as mine.
Podcasts I listen to: Collins and Herring, Adam and Joe, As it
occurs to me, The Joe Rogan Experience, Bill Burr's Monday Morning
Podcast, Proopcast, anything with Kevin Smith.
